Fostering Learning and Student Growth

SIMCARE CENTER™

Leverage technology to get real-world experience for high-stakes procedures. Patient simulators react much like a live patient would – they have vital signs, they voice discomfort, and can blink, sweat or bleed. From privacy curtain areas to scrub sinks to hospital beds, Chamberlain’s SIMCARE CENTER™ facilities closely replicate hospital and clinical settings.

Student Support at Chamberlain

We know how important it is for you to have the support you need to succeed while earning your degree. That’s why we strive to provide you with the same extraordinary care and support you provide your patients.

I have never gone to a school where it actually felt like
family. I want success with my peers, the faculty want
success from you. Just to have that community of
constant support makes it home. This is my home and I
love it here.
